Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh finally!  I hear this ALL THE TIME when I listen to Mandarin speakers.  Then I ask them what word is that it sounds like "N----", and they usually say they have no idea what I'm talking about because my pronunciation is bad. 

Then they start talking again and I hear it again.  I thought I was the only one.  It really does sound like N word though when most Mandarin speakers say it.  Watch the video in the link.  Totally sounds like the guy is saying the N word.

With all the Chinese in Irvine I’m surprise you aren’t familiar with the word. It’s Nega, it’s a filler word, similar to hmm or uh

Seems a fairly easy check to verify if he disabled zoom recording then said the word.  It's a USC MBA class, much be 40+people on the video.

Ms Nguyen.   Oh shit that was hard.

Or https://lmgtfy.com/?q=phuc+peonunciation

Allthough should probably say Student Nguyen instead of Ms in case she self identifies and prefers they or other pronoun.  >:D
